Guatemala - Manuel de Jesus son of Marta Lidia Barrientos

Marta Lidia Barrientos went to Roosevelt Hospital for a c-section. She was sent to another private hospital since Roosevelt could not help her that day. She signed blank papers which were said to be permission for the c-section. After she awoke from anesthesia, she was told her son had died. She asked for the body and a death certificate, but was given neither.

Three months later, she was asked to go to children's court to sign documents to arrange the final adoption of her son (now alive!). She refused to sign, and finally PGN recovered the child on Oct 3, 2007, 1 year after his birth.
